Dry but rich
Nuts, seeds and dry fruit are the perfect complement to your plant protein intake. Easy to conserve and introduce to in a balanced diet, they are your allies throughout the day.
Rich in fibre.
A source of good natural fat, lipids or mono-unsaturated acids. They are rich in essential minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese and phosphorus), but they are also concentrated with calories.
Health and food safety organizations recommend that you do not exceed a daily dose equivalent to a handful of dry fruits and nuts. Each Mani packet accounts for approximately 10% of the recommended calories in your daily diet.
Some people wonder about their significance in relation to fresh fruits. Of course, with nuts and dry fruits you will not feel as full as you would eating fruit, as their volume is lower and they contain very little liquid. Very rich in fibres, they should be supplemented by water intake to help a good bowel movement. This is their only weakness.
Rich in vitamins B and E.
On the other hand, dried fruit and nuts replace the consumption of several fruits and above all make it possible to integrate nuts into the same food intake. Nuts specifically contain vitamins B and E, as well as essential minerals and mono-unsaturated fatty-acids – the ones that absorb bad fats and fight cholesterol. They are the only ones that supplement the plant protein chain by proteins missing from fruit and vegetables. So their contribution makes it possible to completely replace animal proteins. Ideal for men and women that choose to reduce or eliminate meat from their diet.
Another significant advantage of dry fruit is that they offer approximately 3 to 5 times more minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc,…) than fresh fruit.
So these small pearls are the essential supplement to your vegetable and fresh fruit consumption.
